I get requests for journalism advice daily. People ask me for tips on ‘how to make it as a journalist’ through podcasts, written mailbags, social media, and e-mail .

It’s impossible to keep up. And even if I could, I wouldn’t be able to do you justice because of the nuance required when it comes to journalism advice. Everyone needs to hear something different at different points in their lives. Everyone has different goals and different skill sets.

It was time for me to systematize everything by creating the Kiyan Sobhani Mentorship Program.

I made a lot of mistakes throughout the years en route to where I am today. The reason I’ve put together this program is to help you avoid all of those mistakes and accelerate your learning curve. If you sign up, you’ll get one-on-one sessions with me, as well as my contact on WhatsApp to hold you accountable and disciplined to succeed.

    My Projects:



    A little about me.

    I run the largest Real Madrid Podcast in the world — the Managing Madrid Podcast — where I’m also the chief editor. When I’m not producing Real Madrid content for Managing Madrid, I’m working on my upcoming book, or writing articles for FourFourTwo, StatsBomb, Tifo Football, and others.

    My journey began in 2010, when I started a Toronto Raptors blog, RaptorsWatch.com (RIP). After gaining some experience and graining recognition, I obtained press credentials with the Raptors — attending Raptors games, practices, and other media events.

    I used Raptors Watch as a stepping stone to get to Raptors Republic — an ESPN True Hoop affiliate, where I wrote regularly about the Raptors until 2015.

    In 2015, I decided to use my journalism experience to cover what I truly love — Real Madrid, and European Football. I started writing for Managing Madrid, and over the years, built up my reputation as a Real Madrid analyst. I’m currently the chief editor Managing Madrid, where I also run a near-daily podcast.

    You can find me at the Bernabeu regularly, covering Real Madrid up close.
